addressed the issue himself. yet that forced mr. mccain and other republicans to skip a closed door classified briefing on the attacks where presumably most of his questions would have been answered. the reason? well, there are no cameras in closed door meetings. for more we head to washington and congressman charles rangel of new york. good afternoon. >> hi, martin, good to be back with you. >> republican senator susan collins chided mr. mccain for his absence at wednesday's meeting. she said his request for a new committee to investigate benghazi is, and i'm quoting, not necessary. what is your assessment of mr. mccain's attacks on the president? >> i am surprised, and i'm disappointed. i think that senator mccain has earned the respect of this great country in being able to tell through his own personal experiences the enemies of the united states of america. and to a lesser extent the same could be said by senator graham. for them to see that we have been attacked by enemies of the united states, our embassy and therefore the united states is being attacked, and sunsinstead join
's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> you see how all those states were blue? mr. romney's confident predictions that john mccain was going to win ohio, florida, pennsylvania, virginia, new hampshire, new mexico and thef today in 2008 were wrong in every single instance. they lost every single one of those states. even though it seemed like he seemed quite confident that they were going to win all of those states the day before the election. he didn't say like he felt they were going to win. he said they have the polling data that showed they were going to win in all those states. and they did not win in any of those states. this is just part of the way the game is played. it's just bluffing. and that is important context for understanding what's going on in these last four days of the campaign. there are patterns to how presidential elections end. some of the same stuff happens every four years. specifically, in 1992, the republican candidate was poppy bush. george h.w. bush. the day before the election that year he went and campaigned in pennsylvania. and then the next day, he lost
is well positioned for the future if she and mr. mccain lose. seven days before the '08 election it suddenly became clear whatever they were saying about how confident they were they were definitely going to win, the plans republicans were making and the way they were positioning themselves including to the press indicated otherwise. that was october 28th, 2008. seven days before election day. now this past week it's anonymous paul ryan loyalists specklating publicly about all the wonderful things paul ryan is going to do after mitt romney and he lose this election on tuesday. then this past weekend a possible case of revenge for the loose lipped comments to the "ap" about paul ryan's post-mitt romney future. check this out. this is amazing from politico.com today. kudos to them for getting it. quote, campaign insiders tell politico new jersey governor chris christie was actually mitt romney's first choice for the republican ticket. people involved in the selection process said the campaign believed there was no one who would be more adept and persuasive at delivering romney's me
the alternate reality. >> is mr. mccain operating in reality? >> no. you're not operating in reality if you're reading the information we already have that's already available and you're still whipping up conspiracy theories and weaving tall tales out of nothing. as toure pointed out, senator mccain, how about you actually be in the hearings to hear what's been going on and happening instead of standing in front of the cameras and beating poor susan rice to death. it makes no sense and it's irresponsible. >> it's clear that john mccain is all about sour grapes right now as we often say on our show "the cycle" which airs at 23 o'clock on msnbc. >> you're not come on here again for doing that. toure, and john thnathan capeha thank you. stay with us. >> he never gave a reason why to vote for mitt romney. barack obama gave at least a reason why to vote for him to his supporters, albeit wrong. governor romney -- >> no, the reason wasn't wrong though. mr. obama said quite clearly, if you vote for me i'm going to give you money. am i wrong, miss schaefer, am i wrong about this?

davis, senator lindsey gramm, lt. governor jerry he -- kerry heli, governor bobby jindal, mrs. mccain senator john mccain, governor rick perry, senator marco rubio, senator rick santorum, governor john sununu, senator john thune, senator pat to me -- pat toomey, congressman steve javits. ladies and gentlemen, from the great state of ohio, lt. governor mary taylor. [applause] crowd: four more days! >> alright, you guys. are we ready to do everything we can in ohio to let mitt romney and paul ryan at the next president and vice president of the united states -- to elect mitt romney and paul ryan as the next president and vice president of the united states? this is outstanding. i have been a lot of campaign rallies over the last couple of weeks and i have decided i have boiled down my reasons to supporting mitt romney down to three. the first, president obama comes to ohio and like to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that is not true. it is the worst but governor kay sick and i have done with all of the -- it is the work that the governor and i have done with
. >> and senator kelly ayotte, lindsey graham and john mccain mrs. calling for a bipartisan senate panel to investigate the attack that left four americans dead. and a stunning endorsement set to be revealed tomorrow, but we have a sneak peek. nearly 500 former admirals and generals independent from mitt romney's campaign set to endorse him. and they'll run a full page ad in the washington times tomorrow and they're paying for the ad on their own. two days ago, they promised to send a generator from the canceled new york city marathon to areas hit by sandy. >> and a made it clear that all the assets that this marathon currently has generators, equipment, food, water, will be redeployed to people who need it. >> gretchen: but the new york post reporting that some the generators sat idle yesterday in a rental company's parking lot in new jersey and ten heaters hooked up in a medical tent for the marathon, even though they're no long her needed. >> brian: and the marathon people say they blame hostile media reaction to them holding the marathon and sponsors pushing them to canceled. they'd
had received and to go after her reputation is outrageous. >> senator mccain heard that remark and took to the floor of the sen sat to respond. mr. president, four brave americans died. it has now been eight weeks and the american people have received nothing but contradick tri statements from all levels of our government. this administration has either been guilty of incompetence or engaged in a cover up neither of which is acceptable to the american people. >> there are still serious unanswered questions about the timeline of events. remarks in the days and weeks that followed. specifically, why didn't the president call it an act of terrorism the president said it was quote too early to know exactly how this came about. or on september 25th, the president said they were quote still doing an investigation. how the president described it five days after the attacks. >> putting together our assessment is that what happened was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction almost a copy cat demonstration against our facility in cairo. >> that turned out to be wrong. some question sen
now mr. romney is here john ess than w mccain was in 2008. not a good sign in old dominion. in ohio the romney campaign is looking for a big turn-out in southern ohio from coal country in the east on the pennsylvania, west virginia side to hamilton county cincinnati on the western side. with a big turn-out they may be able to overcome what is a substantial democratic turn-out in the northern part of the state around toledo where the detroit bail-out politics played very heavy. they keep watching and waiting recognizing that florida, ohio and virginia as they go, perhaps so goes the country, shep. >> carl cameron, thanks very much. let's get to chicago now and ed a nry following the obam campaign. of the battleground states, three of them are called. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin. all for president obama. >> big hoops and hollers here in chicago. they've got the volunteers streaming in behind me starting to come in for what they hope to be a celebration later. the president not here. he is still at his private residence. he had a family dinner. wife, children, mother-in-law, etc.
this name back out there. mitt romney. from one republican who was defeated by the president john mccain to this the most recent in his wake, it is mr. romney. he's now offering an explanation for his defeat on a conference call with top donors, portions of which were were put online. >>> the president's campaign focused on certain members of the base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts for the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> so the campaign is offering this statement. governor romney was simply elaborating on what obama senior strategist axelrod said about the effort to target key demographics, namely women. is this an example of why exactly romney lost? >> yes. it's basically what he said out loud in public. he confirmed that it was what he did think. it sounds like he really does think that. financial gifts to people is not really what happened. lots of republicans are really critical of this as well. they don't think it's helpful. mitt romney is going to be an irrelevant figure in the republican party any way. that is very unwis
and this is specifically i know you want to address, mr. secretary. let's look at just the overall latino vote starting with george w. bush, the man you work for. he got 44% of the latino vote. john mccain in 2008 got 31%. mitt romney last tuesday got 27%. a precipitous tropical. i just want to continue on this. let's focus in on a couple of the key battleground states. florida, in 200814% overall of the latino vote. in 201217%. colorado, sorry, we have a different one up there. let me go to this. romney, this is very important, 39%. obama 42%. this is latino vote in the state of florida. colorado, look at that difference. mitt romney 23%. barack obama 38%. republicans are simply not doing well. when i started to talk about this before it's that the percentage of the latino vote is going up in those states. >> as i talked to latinos, the insight that i got was that latinos were scared. you know, it wasn't the economy and -- they were scared of the republican party, and i think fear is what did us in. people were scared of people like todd akin kin. they were scared of richard murdock. they were scared
for sure yesterday. >>> really, the -- it's, senator john mccain, has issue with how this was handled as well as lindsay graham, and lindsay graham with a pretty fiery statement said, mr. president don't think for one minute that i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander-in-chief, before, during and after the attack. given what i know now i have no intention of promoting any one who is up to their eyeballs in the benghazi debacle. and susan rice currently u.n. ambassador, being floated as hillary clinton's successor. >> also interesting, some report going on about how, times have changed though. because obviously, many years ago when they were nominated condoleezza rice to be secretary of the state at the time, she was national security adviser she had gone around saying about the weapons of mass destruction in iraq, other intelligence. ended up proving false at the time. mccain stood by her. despite obviously the wrong information that she was disseminating at the time. saying "i am not going to mention my colleague's name. some of the rema
, senator john mccain on who will win the presidency. he has some passionate thoughts about the libya situation. and later on. bernard mcquirk forced to evacuate hit home on long gecko (clearing throat) thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties! with cake! and presents! ah, that was good. too bad nobody could hear me. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. >> personal story segment. there's perhaps known more qualified in the country right now to speak about the last days of a presidential campaign than senator john mccain. four years ago he thought he would win the presidency. no he has some very strong views on what will happen tuesday night. also senator mccain is furious, furious about libya. i spoke with him last night. senator, firs
when it comes to american national security. >> judge jeanine: take it to the bank? mr. president, your check just bounced. here is one person determined to find the truth about benghazi. senator john mccain joins me now on the phone. good evening, senator. >> good evening, judge. i'm sorry that i'm not there to be looked at. we are in virginia and we are campaigning for mitt romney and so i'm glad to talk to you on the phone. by the way, i think your depiction of events as they have transpired everything i know is totally accurate and i want to mention to you that in traveling around virginia today i was in ohio yesterday, i was in montana before that, north dakota, i can tell you our veterans and our active duty military are angry. they have lost any trust in this commander in chief that they might have once had and i'm telling you i have never seen them so angry as they are and with good reason. >> judge jeanine: and, of course, senator, none of us can blame them. but senator, you are asking for a new committee to be created an immediate creation of a temporary select committee possi
upset. let's send this back to senator mccain. go ahead, sir. you were going to jump in and answer both of them. >> i don't expect mr. martin or mr. lizza to understand our veterans. i know them. i've seen them out there. by the way, this was the sixth -- sixth jobs bill that we have. we have six jobs programs. the point is veterans do care what happens to other veterans. veterans are upset. maybe mr. lizza doesn't understand that and i wouldn't expect him to, to tell you the truth. the fact is veterans care about this and there's been a cover-up for seven weeks. for seven weeks we haven't been able to get an answer out of the president of the united states. mr. lizza and mr. martin, i respect their views. i don't think it's grounded in any experience. i thank you for having me on. >> hold on one second. margaret hoover, jump in, please. >> senator mccain's right. also these are key states. colorado, virginia, florida, nevada where you have large military populations. and this is one of several issues that people are considering. even if jobs and the economy is at the top, this is part
